Default Re: Hit and run attempt

im going to ask my dad who is a retired cop of what he should do, i kno its quite a bit later but who knows. the one thing i kno is take pictures, lots and lots of pictures. if you have the girls address go over, say sorry (so you dont feel like a piece of shit anymore) and take lots of pictures of her car. anything that shows your paint on her car visa versa, just in case it goes to court or you can use it for insurance reasons.

Well, made it to Texas...called the insurance before I left and they got all the info. Told them that she admitted being drunk and told them I witnessed her do it and she admitted fault, thats how I got her insurance card. They called me back but I was driving. Said they are going to send me to get an estimate (they knew I was moving) and we are going to go from there. So imma call them back tomorrow after my interview and take it in to get an estimate. Seems so far everything is going to be handled smoothly...Think the insurance is just glad no one was in my truck so all they have to do is pay for a tail gate and a rollpan...no medical bills or anything. Lets hope they continue being strait up.

Sounds great. At least she is cooperating. My gf got in a wreck in a parking lot, because some little shit slammed into her coming out of an isle doing like 30 to 40! He tried to run, but she followed him to another parking lot. So we called tho police to try and file a police report, but we got something similiar. So weeks went by and this ******* wouldn't talk to the insurance company. We called him countless time and he wouldn't do it, even though he said he would. We finally got some witnesses together and they went to the insurance agent and told them what they saw. The only reason he finally admitted to fault is because we told him we had witnesses and he got scared.

Glad to hear you made it to Texas. Was worried since you didn't update for a couple of days that things were going worse regarding the accident. But such a move explains it. I hope things go good in Texas for you job-wise and that you get the Ranger fixed at the cost of her insurance. If I go to a mall/grocery store/etc., I always purposely park where most avoid...requiring a longer walk to whatever. I do this to try to avoid finding my vehicle damaged by a door hitting it or worse. I don't go to bars/hotels anymore but there are several reasons to not park there..in their parking lot..better to consider an even longer walk to and from to avoid something like what happened to you. Better yet don't drive there in the 1st place again for several reasons.

first off im sorry to hear this happened to you.. second Id have called the cops the minute i pulled her dumb ass outta the truck... the DWI and years of insurance torture coupled with whatever she suffered as a result of being pulled out of the window would be a better lesson to her for not being stupid than anything else. If she whined to the cops that you assaulted her, all you say is she threatened to run you over..

The insurance agent has yet to get in touch with her. But the agent still had me go to a bodyshop for an estimate. $856 is the damage to the body+ he put a note on there that the insurance should send me to a mechanic because I noticed some trans fluid on my transmission when I changed my oil yesterday. It was in gear when she hit me with the parkingbrake on. It wasnt dripping, but there has to be at least a minor leak. So the insurance agent should be calling me later today or tomorrow when he receives the estimate.

Had an interview Monday and they seemed real impressed, but havent heard back for my second interview. Tried calling but the boss was out, so I have to call back this afternoon. Got another interview tomorrow too so hopefully one of these places hires me...because I will if I have to, but really dont want to do door to door applications.
